Primary Instructor:

Jews have had a running love affair with cities reaching back in time to their first love, Jerusalem, on through other storied cities of the land of Israel, Italy, Europe, and of course, the United States. This course explores Jewish engagement with diverse urban worlds. It asks how Jews imagined cities, created sacred Jewish spaces within them, responded to other urban dwellers, and shaped the physical and cultural texture of urban life. Grounded in history, the course will draw upon varied texts and approaches and will include guest lectures from distinguished visiting scholars.
